Winner + Felted Project Inspiration

Nova Chunky Interchangeable Set

Thanks to everyone who entered our blog giveaway this month! Our lucky winner is Katrina who said, "I would love to try fixed circular ones". We've contacted Katrina to arrange the shipment of her prize, a pair of Basix Birch Fixed Circular needles.

We received a tremendous response to our last post about quick, chunky knits using larger needles, so today we'll be sharing more pattern inspiration with you. Wool yarns and large needles are the perfect combination for your next felting project; we have several chunky interchangeable needle sets which contain needle pairs in 9.00mm, 10.00mm and 12.00mm sizes - all you have to do is choose which type of needle tip you prefer! As we saw in our previous post, our Basix Birch line is another great option for projects requiring larger-sized knitting needles.

If you have never intentionally felted a knitted or crocheted piece, here are a few helpful resources to get you started:
